San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle sure seems like a good guy. That is when he is not making up stories and sharing secrets about quarterback Nick Mullens.

Kittle is entertaining, open, and honest during press conferences. He is interesting during locker room interviews. And now the rest of the NFL fanbase is falling in love with the 49ers tight end, who this past season broke the NFL single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end.

Kittle is in Orlando, Florida with 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk and defensive tackle DeForest Buckner as the trio prepares for Sunday's Pro Bowl.

Wednesday was the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge, and Kittle spent a lot of time after the event signing autographs for fans. So much time, in fact, that he was the last player off the field, according to 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin.

The effort by Kittle made several fans of other teams want the 49ers tight end's jersey, which ... ahem ... can be purchased here.


Kittle's actions are probably not surprising to the Niner Faithful. The tight end took the time to shake every service member's hand before the 49ers' Week 10 matchup against the New York Giants.


Kittle registered 88 receptions for 1,377 yards with five touchdowns this past season, which was just his second in the NFL.
